Put them into Practice.

GODS GUIDEBOOK

“Everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” (Matthew 7:24 The Holy Bible, New International Version)

Reading the Bible and then not applying its principals is like reading an instruction manual and then trying to build your project on your own without listening to the guidance provided in the manual.

Sounds pretty dumb huh?

But, on the other hand, incorporating the sacred knowledge in the hidden truths of the Bible will enable us to walk closer to God. It will be a life filled with good morals and a foundation of truth which to cement into our hearts.

“Making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding; yes, if you call out for insight and raise your voice for understanding, if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.” (Proverbs 2:2-5 The Holy Bible, English Standard Version)

This will hold us in good stead when the violent crushing storms of life come crashing down around us (and the storms of life always come until our dying day)

James 1:22 says, “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says” (The Holy Bible, New International Version).

After reading the Bible we need to request God to open our eyes in how to apply what we have learned into our daily lives.

” Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.” James 4:17 (The Holy Bible, New Living Translation).

“Your word is a lamp to guide me and a light for my path” (Psalm 119:105 The Holy Bible, Good News Bible).

Guard my words as your most precious possession. Write them down and also keep them deep within your heart.” (Proverbs 7:2 The Holy Bible,The Living Bible)

We are to obey what the Holy Spirit teaches or we are wasting His time by being make believe Christians. Joseph a son of Jehovah

We are not to become Holy Rollers or Bible thumpers.

You know the type. They shove the Bible in your face and pound on it condemning you and demanding you follow THEIR version of the passages. All the while, they go about living as they please. Can you say the word hypocrite or bully?

Please don’t condemn yourselves with this destructive behavior. Not only will you drive others away from Jesus, but you will be found guilty of that heinous crime on judgment day. They are puffed up like a balloon.

Instead use the observations gained in a positive manner to lovingly enlighten those around you.

“Knowledge puffs up but love builds up”. 1 Corinthians 8:1(The Holy Bible, New International Version).

Prayer: Thank you El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing me with enlightening me to Your light while refraining me from overindulging in knowledge while lacking in love. Thank you that Your guard me words so as to prevent me from suffering from foot in mouth disease. I extol You in the name of the supreme expert in these manners Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day Joseph a son of Jehovah

If You Have a Difference With Anyone.

Image

Accept life, and be most patient and tolerant with one another, always ready to forgive if you have a difference with anyone. Forgive as freely as the Lord has forgiven you. Colossians 3:13 J.B. Phillips New Testament                                                                     

Accept life.                                                                                                                                     

Yes it is unfair and many times there is nothing you can do about it.                                          

The best thing to do is to leave it in Jesus’ hands. Otherwise you will become angry and bitter. That will slowly destroy you and all those around you.                                                      

This is hard to do at first but with practice it becomes easier. That does not mean there will come a time when it is always easy.                                                                                

Patience is a virtue that is only gained with constant practice. Joseph -Anthony : Green I find as many get older their patience gets shorter. There is a difference of course with the ones who mature more and more in Christ as they age. They become more like our Beloved King. That does not mean you will never lose your patience. We all have our breaking point. Even Jesus did.                                                                                                       

I find the most intolerant are those who preach we should be more tolerant of them.                    Yes I am talking about the homosexuals who scream we should accept their lifestyle but they refuse to accept ours. It is the same with the Muslims who want to come to our country but refuse to accept our way of life. Yes I am referring to those who are not white and feel they can say and do anything to whitie but scream blue bloody murder when they have to try to stand on equal ground with us (anyone know what affirmative action is?)

There are times when we are not to tolerate unChrist like behaviour not matter what colour, nationality or religion. That said we are to be tolerant of others little nuances like someone who is slow at the check out at the grocery store.                                                        Forgive yes, forget no.                                                                                                              

Yes we are to forgive others as Christ has forgiven us. This is mostly for our own welfare.                                                                                                                           Hatred of the heart is like rust to a car, it starts out small but if you do not get rid of it fast it will destroy you. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                      

If we refuse to forgive than it slowly eats our soul away and we end up bitter, angry and with serious anger management problems. This is bad for society, bad for our relationships and bad for our health.                                                                                             

Now just because we forgive does not mean we are to forget.                                                

That does not mean we are to throw a past offence in somebody’s face with every disagreement.                                                                                                                               

What it does mean is that when someone abuses us we learn how to deal with the situation. Many times the best way to deal with it is with good Christian councilors. So if a girlfriend is a two timer we must forgive her but learn why we are attracted to those types of personalities so as to avoid the situation again.                                                             

No where do you see Jesus indicate that He tolerates destructive behavior.                       

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) create in my mind and in my heart a disposition like our beloved king Jesus so as to be a light unto others how to live a life that is acceptable unto you. I sincerely request this in the name of my greatest mentor Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                              

May  the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
